Second Edition of AISC Design Guide 4 · Aug 3, 2004

The Second Edition of the American Institute of Steel Construction, Inc. (AISC) Design Guide 4: Extended End-Plate Moment Connections is now available. The updated guide was authored by Tom Murray of Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University and Emmett Sumner of North Carolina State University. The guide makes use of yield line theory in a new design philosophy for extended end-plate moment connections in wind and seismic applications, which allows extended end-plate moment connections to be designed using 50ksi steel.

The Second Edition of Design Guide 4 is available both as an electronic download (free to AISC members or $60 to non-members) or as a printed book ($30 to AISC members or $60 to non-members). For more information, visit www.aisc.org/bookstore.
